The history of our farm starts in 1958 with grandfather Francesco (born in 1914) and Grandma Rita (born in 1922) who, after years of sharecropping for Langa farms, decided to buy a small farm in the hills of Diano d'Alba, already well-known for its strong connection with the cultivation of the Dolcetto grape, and finally put down some roots both in their personal and working lives.
As often happens naturally in the course of time, his son Roberto, after attending agricultural college, and his son's wife, Viviana, have taken over the management of the farm, assisted by their son, Lorenzo, a wine technician and with the collaboration of Lara, their daughter.
Our farm, consisting of about 7 hectares of vineyards and 2 of hazel, is at the centre of an imaginary triangle between the bell tower of Diano d'Alba, that of Talloria Valley and the Castle of Grinzane Cavour and is one of the many micro farms on the Langhe wine scene, keeping alive with a great deal of effort this biodiversity that is very difficult to find today.
Having always been very careful about complying with environmental regulations relating to cultivation, the decision was made in 2000, with the support of the whole family, to take the road of organic cultivation.
Our wines are the Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba DOCG of which, in particularly favourable vintages and using grapes from vineyards with the best exposure, we produce sulphite-free versions of Nebbiolo Langhe DOC, Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC, Barbera d 'Alba DOC, the Bulin Bianc (white table wine from Chardonnay grapes) and the Magic Bula, a vintage classic method sparkling wine, 100% Nebbiolo.
We handle all stages of production, from the planting of grape seedlings, to bottling the wine, without external labour.
For about 10 years we have also been producing Tonda Gentile Trilobata PGI hazelnuts, a typical product of our land.
